I think it's weird that they didn't include the largest platform in their comparison.

Oh me too. Best of luck to BB! They seem to aim the sweet spot between closed system cohesion and abundance of customization/features

yeah... it is actually a unix-like..so its a close source but with the beauty of open source!! all i could say BB10 has the formula of Best of Both Worlds!

Learn Nokia. If you don't wanna go to android then reboot symbian or meego.

432 points with the stock browser by Samsung. energyefficient mode is on.Firefox is worse, ands a score is lower. Sadly, I like Firefox on my galaxy note.

In other words I should be believe my lying eyes in the "HTML5" test even though the Windows phone brought it up faster? Hmm... I'll have to ponder that one.

no one said that BB10 will be on top of android!!! are you really jealous that BB10 will take off?! coz again, only people who feel threaten will be really negative towards another that wants to take off!!

Not too surprised, the BB10 browser has been doing awesome overall. I even remember it was beating some desktop browsers in HTML5 tests, not just mobile browsers. I am interested as to why they didnt compare it to an android, like a Galaxy S3 or similar.

This is extremely pathetic. BB10 does open webpages faster, but I would rather wait for 0.5 seconds and have better smoothness when browsing. For example, look at the first webpage loaded on the BlackBerry device, the animation of the picture of the articles changing is so laggy (as you can see in the video vs iPhone) but WP8 looks extremely smooth and iPhone looks a bit less smoother but still far better than BB. Also, my Note II scores 488 with Dolphin Browser in the html test, so the important tasks are done better by both iOS and WP8...

This is about main default browsers, Dolphin Browser is a secondary app. Still none the case blackberry articles still bring out alot of android users hating on BB10. Now that's pathetic

They still have 80,000,000 active users, dead on arrival is far from the truth.

Hmm on the iphone video the website didnt finish loading on the bb10 device look at the loading bar at the bottom, the iphone definitely finished first.

BlackBerry10 is just ugly.....this is the biggest thing. If your going to carry something around for 2yrs don't you want it to be nice to look at? BlackBerry is over.give it up this is going to be a fail when it launches. HTC needs to come back.

the software is ugly?

you could have cleared the cookies from BB10 before comparing it with WP8 ... just an assumption..... First time you open any webpage it open's bit slowly.... second time if u open the same webpage with the same device it open's bit faster ....
